4-H/Youth Development: Camp Cloverbud is summer 4-H camp for the younger generation

If your six-, seven-, or eight-year-old is ready for an overnight 4-H camping experience, then Camp Cloverbud may be the place to start.

Camp Cloverbud is specifically designed for campers (and parents) who are not yet ready for a full week of a residential camping experience. The length of stay is shorter (two nights and days) and the staff to camper ratio is greater.

Campers still participate in all the traditional camp activities offered at 4-H camp including canoeing, swimming, archery, nature, and recreation, as well as a host of fun nighttime activities. Camp Cloverbud will be held June 1 - June 3, 2018 at North Central 4-H Camp in Carlisle, Kentucky. The cost of the camp is $135 for youth and $65 for adults, which includes meals, lodging, transportation, class fees and a T-shirt. Deadline for applications and fees isMay 2, and there is a mandatory camper orientation on Thursday, May 24 at 5:30 p.m. at the

Woodford County Extension Office. During this time, information such as camp rules, packing, schedule and cabin assignments will be gone over.

Camp Cloverbud is a great way for young campers to enjoy the fun and camaraderie of summer camp as they experience their first “sleepaway camp.” Research has shown that those campers who have attended 4-H Cloverbud Camp have a higher tendency to continue the 4-H summer camp experience longer into their life as they return each summer. Help create a tradition for your 4-Her by starting them in the 4-H Cloverbud Camp program.
